We had our second meeting with Jungian analyst Catherine Bygott in Somerset on Friday. As well as discussions she led us in a physical exercise to connect us to our unconscious self. It was a challenging activity but really interesting […]
Process - a-n The Artists Information Company
There is something meditative about being in this field. A slightly altered state of mind. Rhythms form over time, linked by the experiences of previous visits. Revisiting drives my growing curiosity. I visit those areas I have been before, those […]

Y’know when you have too many ideas and too many potential avenues to explore in your practical work to the point you don’t actually do anything because you don’t know what idea is the best to realise or invest time […]
Work from a community project designed to increase public awareness of Kaleidoscope Gallery
Thoughts on bronze during my course and residency at the Scottish Sculpture Workshop, funded by A-N Artist Bursaries 2018. www.clareburnett.net
This blog will be an anchor point/place for me to discuss and reflect on discoveries I make and new experiences I encounter for the duration of a Fellowship with Random String.

The workshop at no.w.here lab reminded me what it is like to have stuff in your hands. Stuff in your hands that you are actually making something with. Alongside all my works produced via digital technology, with nothing more than […]
I am currently transforming my studio – I’ve moved and painted the exterior blue, the interior has now been insulated, I’ve painted it white and building shelves and worktops. It is an equally big transformation for me psychologically as I […]
I have continued to explore memento and artefacts. My interest in the urn has increased and I am currently working with vessels of various shapes and sizes. I am considering the mother as a vessel and the interchangeability of the […]
During 2018 to July 2019 I am one of ten artists working as part of a project, ‘Surrey Unearthed’ across the Surrey Hills. I am an artist and papermaker and work by walking, collecting, interacting with people and making.
studio activity, February 2018.
The possibility of a new studio is simultaneously good and shifting. The landlord and leasing agent (a local housing association) are keen for us to take over the lower ground floor rooms of an old school gymnastics hall – which […]
In December I submitted the final drafts to the first two modules on the MA. I navigated and battled my way through feminist artists in history and women who have presented work relating to the relationships they hold with their […]

Re-imagining objects collected from recent beach walks I’m transfixed by the translucence of things. Lit from below, I can see through shells. New layers of surface and texture emerge, bringing new landscapes, perhaps the moon? Photographed closely I can see […]
From one crabby body to another. Breathing new life into bits of crab chewed and discarded by herring gulls. A joyful playful studio space. Heart: Skull: Lungs: Intestines: Dancing Legs/Pointing Fingers: Flamingo:
Experimenting with a light box – silhouettes of dancing egg cases and holed stones.
In time things accumulate. It is not always easy to notice. When dust starts to collect, it is only once it has gathered in swaythes, the sun comes out and casts new light on it, that it gets noticed. Grains […]
I am interested in the way in which Gerhard Richter created a vast number of ‘overpainted’ photographs. These are categorised into groups such as ‘self portraits’ and ‘family’. Each colour photograph has been overpainted with oil paint, and simply titled […]
After researching Michael Landy’s Breakdown, primarily for my dissertation, I have become interested in unpicking everyday objects. I found the processes Landy used to order, catalogue, destroy and document all of his possessions intriguing. I especially was interested in how he kept […]
Flotsam is the term used for objects that float away from a boat, jetsam is thrown over board. Flotsam and jetsam get washed up, eventually. Colourful pathways of detritus, signs of human activity out at sea, plastic mostly. Nylon rope, […]
One of the greatest challenges for me at the moment is of stillness. Being unwell and tolerating that, along with its unpredictability, brings it’s own internal activity – frustration, impatience, attempts to bargain and negotiate with an irrational unknown. Stillness of […]
